Texas State's 30-13 win against Houston in the season opener was so big, and yet so bad, it led to the Cougars' offensive coordinator resigning after the game. It also led to the Bobcats receiving votes in the latest AP college football poll.
The Bobcats received 10 votes, that's behind Texas, TCU, and Baylor and ahead of Texas A&M.
The win against a Houston team that was favored by 36.5 points was the first game for Texas State in the FBS level.
Not sure how this win is going to translate moving forward, but don't think that Texas Tech is going to have an easy game in San Marcos on Saturday. BTW: The Red Raiders are favored by 17.5 points. That is awfuuuuuuuly tempting.
This is Dennis Franchione at his best: Taking the underwhelming and making them competitive.
Good for Fran'.
Good for Texas State AD Larry Teis for having the foresight to hire him.
And good for Texas State.
